I am a landscape and natural history photographer based in Devizes, at the head of the Vale of Pewsey, within striking distance of a great diversity of natural habitats and ancient landscapes such as the Pewsey Downs, Avebury stone circle and Silbury Hill. I have been a naturalist all my life, with a particular passion for butterflies, and work professionally as an ecologist. Photography is the perfect complement to my natural history instincts and I am never happier than when I am exploring a meadow or woodland with camera in hand. My photographic interests include the landscapes, wildlflowers, trees and natural habitats within the Marlborough Downs and Pewsey Vale. The importance of the right light falling on the subject is as true upon the wings of a butterfly as it is upon a landscape, tree or meadow. My inspiration and motivation is to share and communicate the beauty, importance and vulnerability of the natural world.

I have had success with pictures being published in photographic magazines, Practical Photography and Outdoor Potography, and images used by Government and NGO conservation organisations.

Profile

I am based in Devizes, Wiltshire at the head of the beautiful Vale of Pewsey. I live within striking distance of a great diversity of natural habitats and ancient landscapes such as the Pewsey Downs, Avebury stone circle and Silbury Hill. I am often found exploring the rolling chalk downs between Devizes and Pewsey which support a great diversity of plants and butterflies.
